I have been an attorney licensed to practice law in California for over 17 years. I am a skilled litigator and a trial attorney. I have conducted 30+ jury trials to verdict, including criminal and civil cases.
I was a prosecutor for nearly ten years. As a Deputy District Attorney with the Riverside County DA’s Office, I handled cases in the areas of general misdemeanors, general felonies, narcotics, domestic violence, sexual assaults and child abuse with a 90% conviction rate.
As a Deputy Attorney General (DAG) in the Licensing Section at the California Department of Justice, I represented various government licensing agencies in disciplinary actions filed against licensed professionals before the Office of Administrative Hearings. As a Deputy Attorney General, I handled all phases of complex administrative litigation in disciplinary actions against licensees or unlicensed individuals, including appeals from denials of applications for licensure, prosecution of disciplinary actions against licensees, interim suspension and relief cases, including PC 23 hearings, license reinstatement cases, probation modification and termination cases, and injunctive proceedings.
In private practice, I have handled complex civil litigation and administrative law cases through settlement or trial in the areas of personal injury, business litigation, contracts, professional liability, real estate and probate law. I have successfully represented individual and corporate clients, both plaintiffs and defendants, throughout Southern California. I have extensive experience in all aspects of litigation, including pleadings, discovery, mediation, settlement negotiation, arbitration, law and motion, trial, and appeals.
